A-Rod: I want to win a World Series

Posted by: Peter Abraham - Posted in Misc on Feb 20, 2008 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

The Really Long Meeting is underway. The Yankees won’t get on the field until 11.

Talked to two Yankees beforehand: Robinson Cano and Alex Rodriguez. Cano said that he will miss Larry Bowa. It was Bowa who helped make Cano, working with him on defense and staying on him not to get lazy.

“I spoke to him two weeks ago and asked me how much I weighed,” Cano said, laughing.

Girardi is going to keep a close eye on Cano, as will Kevin Long. Bow’s not the first coach to bust chops on a young player.

A-Rod did a session with the television guys then the print and radio people. It was too short because he actually gave good answers. A short recap: He’s not talking to Scott Boras, who is still his agent. He has never used PEDs. He wants to win a World Series. He wants to finish his career as a Yankee. John Rocker was lying about that meeting with doctors in Texas.

Back in a bit with the A-Rod audio.

    Note to A-Rod:

    Dearest A-Rod,

    All of the New York fans would like to see you win a World Series as well. Preferably this year and a few years thereafter.

    Sincerely,

    Ray

    raymagnetic,

    Thanks for reminding A- Rod we’d all like that.

    I’m feelin giddy right now for a middle aged geezer. I just managed to get 2 tix to the last home game of the year. It will be a sad day,but I’ve spent so many hours in the Stadium that I’m happy to get a chance to say goodbye.

    The more I see ARod, the more I like him. Because he is NOT a prototypical masher, he strikes out a fair amount and he doesn’t have a great batting eye, I always thought he was overrated. But while he is far from the most dangerous hitter around, he is indeed, a great all around ballplayer.

    Last year I paid special attention to his baserunning, which was just outstanding. His ability to read to ball off the bat and get great jumps off a base is outstanding. His judgement on the basepaths is really great.

    And now we are getting to see how he takes care of his body. Because of this, he should be productive for much of his contract. If he doesn’t get injured, we will see all kinds of records fall. I hope the fans can appreciate him while he is still in his prime years. He is a monument waiting to happen.

    Drive – you got tickets to Game 4 of the World Series? (J/K)

  5. Steve February 20th, 2008 at 10:40 am

    He wants to win a World Series? What a shocker… what player doesn’t? :rolleyes:

    Pete, your title for this entry has got to rank up there on the Understatement of the Century list. :D

    Doesn’t surprise me in the least that he’s still not talking to Boras. What I don’t understand is why he keeps Boras on as his agent.

  7. Yazman February 20th, 2008 at 11:54 am

    OYF, I always enjoy your analysis, and I agree on ARod. One exception/question: if he is far from the most dangerous hitter around, who is more dangerous?

  8. YankeesLuv February 20th, 2008 at 5:03 pm

    welcome back Arod. Seems each year Arod seems more comfortable, good to see.

  9. Super Bowl February 20th, 2008 at 10:12 pm

    I’m so glas Arod’s a yankee. Too ad he can’t fire Boras.

Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you?

    Just as attractive as the castle, however, is the village of Portmeirion itself. As with any sales situation, you should attempt and build a rapport along with your seller. I also loved the scalloped edges about the pieces because that usually dress them up somewhat to make them unique as opposed to the the simpl . This implies that if you serve a simply cooked food in a professional manner, you can win the heart of your guests. But at the same time if you are careless about the table arrangement and garnishing of your most passionately cooked recipe, it will fails to win the appreciations it requires.

    Unabhängige Cllr Josie Egan sagte, dass die Verfügbarkeit von Bands war ein weiterer Grund, warum es sinnvoll ist, um die Parade am Sonntag zu haben. Sie erklärte, dass die Achill Pipe Band haben die Teilnahme an der Parade Castlebar seit mehr als 20 Jahren und sie wurden nur die Teilnahme an der Parade Ballina für zehn Jahre. Sie fügte hinzu, dass sie nicht verfügbar waren am Samstag waren aber am Sonntag zur Verfügung. Sie sagte, dass viele andere Bands wurden in ähnlicher Weise beeinträchtigt wird.

    Trotz dieser Fortschritte Oculus immer noch vor ein harter Kampf bevor VR-Headsets alltäglich geworden. Überzeugende Spiel-Unternehmen an kompatible Software zu machen ist eine Hürde, Unterstützung würde Benutzer anpassen, um eine neue Methode der Eingabe wird eine andere (im Kopf behalten, dass die Rift reagiert nur auf die Kopfbewegungen des Benutzers; Steuerung von Körper eines Videospiel-Charakter wird durch ein hand traditionellen Controller). Doch das Unternehmen hofft, dass seine Open-Source-Ethik werden diejenigen, die daran interessiert zu helfen, die Technologie nach vorne sind zu ermöglichen. Und nur wenige würden bestreiten, dass das Headset auch in den Kinderschuhen, ist der Beweis für die Lebensfähigkeit eines neuen Videospiele-Ansatz.

    Mr. Jordan also noted that crop production is slated to grow by about 1.5 per cent in 2012 as planted acreage and yields move back to more normal levels and prices remain elevated.

    Most I can say is, I am not sure what to comment! Except needless to say, for the great tips which have been shared on this blog. I can think of a trillion fun methods to read the reports on this site. I do think I will ultimately take action with your tips on those issues I could not have been able to manage alone. You are so careful to allow me to be one of those to profit from your valuable information. Please know how significantly I enjoy the whole thing.

    The idea was strange to me. It sounded too simple. Somehow, I had always operated on the premise that, if you wanted something in this world, you had to go out and get it for yourself. Yet, sincerity and hard work had yielded only meager returns, and I was willing to try anything. Experimentally, self consciously, I cultivated the daily practice of prayer. I said: God, show me the purpose for which You sent me to this world. Help me to be of use to myself and to humanity.
